Here are the facts:
The players: The cast of SeaLife, a science-based reality television show, has stumbled upon an unexplored island.
The situation: The South Pacific island is just what the show needs: the scientists are intrigued and the ratings are through the roof. But it turns out Henders Island is home to many vicious and exotic predators—animals that have evolved in extreme isolation. And it isn’t long before the ultimate test of survival begins.
A small sampling: “As its jaws peeled open, revealing dark appendages, he smelled the sour stench of its breath and felt a splatter of stinging drool on his face. The rope lunged upward as the beast yanked it with two arms, and its head stretched down over the rocky edge on an elastic neck. He felt its hot breath and his heart pounded as the creature screamed a sound he never imagined could come from a living thing.”
What others have said: “Mr. Fahy takes readers on a wild ride
Think Jurassic Park but scarier.&rdquo —Wall Street Journal
